Nature’s Lament

Inspired by Eugenia’s Weekly Prompt – Dusk & Reena’s Exploration Challenge #226

the fiery sky
begs me at dusk
come
see nature’s bounty
unburdening

each step i take
mires me to its message
relinquishing the day
i listen for the confessions of the dark

mother cries
her beauty is vanishing
her children the cause

    1. Thank you, Heather. If we would, collectively and intentionally, do our best to address the condition of nature, I would then finally feel the heaviness lift as well. Let’s hope it happens in our lifetimes.

  1. Beautifully written, Susi. It’s sad when a mother feels her beauty is vanishing because it’s a woman’s inner beauty that matters. Beauty vanishes for many reasons including stress from archaic mindsets.

    1. While this piece aligns more with thoughts of Mother Earth and what we human’s are doing to it, human mother’s too are affected by the natural cycle of life. Our kids age us, don’t they? 😉
